    Evening All
    Well I thought I'd try a few 342.. should have noticed the DB wasn't in 342.. went on the white label and didn't notice the word offer was missing. Oh well, it's down to £1.50 in T so coat £1.35 each.. not as good as better than free.
    Found a new one and some potentials.

    Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Active 3 in 1 wash, mask and scrub.
    In 342
    A £3.35 Vs T £1.50 = 23p each.

    Nivea lip care pearly shine
    A £2.00 Vs M £1 or T 242
    Works out 23p each.

    [QUOTE=3Dogs;73253051]Evening Elite I didn't make my flu jab (I rang half hour before to change appointment to 31st October) and I didn't make it in to work for 1-4 shift (I text at 12.30 to say I couldn't make it). I just could not get out of bed as I was zonked out. Didn't get up till 6pm My depression is getting the better of me at the moment. I don't want to go to bed at night so stay up late, but once in bed, I don't want to get up and face the day

    So sorry you are feeling down at the moment 3dogs, hopefully a few doggy cuddles and a bit of sunshine tomorrow will make you feel a bit better.

    I think the Pearly Lip Balm should work out same price against T as against M if you buy 6 as T is 2 for £2.
    M is £1 straight. You are telling me the Light Blue Lip Balm does not work against M. It should work against T in 6s, or, slightly worse, against W in 3s (W £1.03 each).

    N.I. only have T comp. - must buy 6s (and not twelve of the same one).

    I do not know whether Cherry works against M - it appears that it won't work against T as it does not seem to be online on t.com (which may be because T don't have it at all or that they only have it instore).

    You are asking me about Strawberry vs M. Pass. I don't know to be honest as £1 wasn't seen as a good straight M price. In other words, straight 10% off = 90p wasn't any good (I can't account for glitches that I don't know about in advance of a price check day).

    As I mentioned earlier, the list has been substantially reorganised. The theory is that, should I check again in M, this will help save me time rechecking in further stores offers that were expected to have expired. In the past, I had no record of what these should be. The downside is that, if you are after a particular item or category of item, you now need to check the entire list as it is sorted by stated expiry date (offers are sometimes pulled before the stated date).

    I only need now to check the above instore - as I've taken expiry dates from online and, if I don't know an expiry date, it's because the item is not online. Plus the regular price items that are not online. Plus the SP-equivalents, many of which do not appear online (I have no current record of which these are). Plus some TBG items, that are not online for M - the 32 Dettol Citrus wipes btw are off in M (now £2). I have not amended the Tvs M list yet - it will remain, I think, in its current format. I do not bother with T prices - as the idea is not to look at the TBG reduction and think you are getting any real discount, as if there's no glitch on many of these items, it is simply that you are (if you have no T-specific vouchers or staff discount) paying the straight M price. So only that price is there, for information as it's largely what you would pay. I do not want to tempt anyone into spending more than they need to by looking at a huge TBG discount when, really, it is simply T is currently vastly inflated prices compared to M - you should just look at it as buying at M prices - perhaps if you have no M near to you but have only a T that qualifies for TBG - and T obviously getting you to buy potentially tenfold from them to get an M offer whilst, in M, you just buy the one item on offer that you need! Almost all of Tvs M should therefore also be red as being part of - a continuation if you like of - "Buy in M". The exception is the baking items if there is any 'glitch' if T's category-wide offer doesn't appear on TBG.

    Of course there are also other items that are available in both T and M and substantially cheaper in M at the moment but which are purely buy in M items as they are RTC in M and T, even if it has them in TBG's 3 M stores, should not compare against M leaving you out of pocket paying T's sometimes very much higher price or potentially buying over what you need getting a T mbuy that still works out much more expensive than the clearance item in M (and especially as clearance items in M can often be found on even cheaper prices on a store-specific basis knocked down even more - but you would have to be in the right M purely by chance - you could get a couple of RTC items even cheaper in one M in one place and another item or two cheaper in another M and another couple of different items knocked down further by some other store - just happens to depend on where you live, as to what you have in your M(s)).

    I just need to check the above small list (and the non-online regular price, SP and TBG items). However, that's the theory - unfortunately it doesn't work. Last time, I put only a couple of Johnson's baby products onto the list - being lazy of course - to be fair I did have a lot and I decided to exclude the ones that were 'useless' price match vs price match back then as A was same price as M. They were all on msm anyway, at the time I checked last week, so - see msm! Except that A has now put up its prices meaning I would now put them on the list but I am not certain which ones M has as many of them have now disappeared off msm. So, no good me relying on online and not bothering to take precise details of Johnson's products instore (I thought I would save some time) - I obviously need to take complete information instore everytime as the items will drop offline.

    As a result of reordering the list, I have added virtually nothing yet that came from Wednesday so I am now running a little late on that. I will try to start it soon and will be taking expiry dates in future, where available from online - they are not stated in stores in any manner I can currently understand - as I go along. I have removed entirely what I believe to be expired items, except for the McVities snack bars that were still comparing against what I believe to be an expired price. I expect the APG to get 87p at some imminent time, if it isn't already doing so now, but have left these on the list for information with the M suspected or approximate expiry date already having expired.

    Actually of course I would also need to check further non-online items that will be ones found yesterday that are not yet added to the list. And, in any event, it doesn't work - I don't know if M have Nivea Lip Strawberry or not as there's nothing online and I didn't check! It may have been on my old list as an RTC in M ages ago that will have now vanished without trace (except if it's in your M). <- EDIT: No, I'm thinking of Chapstick Strawberry that went to 78p in M.

    That's brilliant Savvy, thank you. I wondered how it compared to £3.50 but of course it is 2 for £2 then 1 at £1.50. So buying 6 v Tesco will give same comparison as Morries, i.e. 23p each

    It is the mid blue one I bought that didn;t show on APG - Nivea Original Lip Balm. My store don't sell the pale blue one so I was unable to test it

    So I will now amend my post and update post 20 that 6 v T should be 23p each
